MR. DUNCAN SCHWANN
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies what are the present average wages of skilled workmen in the mines of the Witwatersrand; and what were the average figures for this time last year.
§ MR. CHURCHILL
The average wages of white employees per shift, usually ten hours, on the Witwatersrand range, I understand, from about 11s. to about 32s. and are substantially the same as last year.
